They are computerised systems that facilitate the management of properties, personal property, equipment, including maintenance, legalities and personnel all through a single piece of software. They replaced old-fashioned, paper-based methods that tended to be both cumbersome and inefficient. Such systems are often deployed as client/server configurations or the most next-generation property management systems are cloud, web or browser-based technologies.
